Have you ever thought your teacher was the very worst? Maybe she thinks the same thing about you!
This is what happens to one unruly class of elementary pupils when they discover the very worst substitute teacher ever, and wish they had their own Miss Nelson back again. ( )

This book is an all around great book. It is about a class of kids who do not behave, and there teacher comes up with a plan to fix that. Miss Nelson goes "missing" and is replaced by the vile Miss Viola Swamp. It goes through the students imagination of what happened to her and how they must get Miss Nelson back. ( )

This book was true teacher humor! A class of students learned their lesson about misbehaving and taking advantage of having a good teacher. Their substitute is a horrible and scary woman and they are afraid of her - coincidentally she looks just like their teacher. It was a very cute story and they learned their lesson after begging for their old teacher back. ( )
